Down Under Sunday

Hiya House Panthers! It's time for another Down Under Sunday installment!

Today I thought I'd show you some of the nice places in Melbourne. They say that Melbourne is the sports capital of the world so we have some very big sporting stadiums: the biggest is the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).  It holds 100,000 people and has lots of sporting events all through the year.  There are also concerts held at the MCG - U2 performed there last year.

Melbourne is also famous for its gardens.  There are lots of big gardens right in the city but the biggest is the Botanical Gardens - I don't know how big the garden is but it's very large!

One last picture for today - this is the main beach in Melbourne - called St Kilda beach.  It's only 10 minutes from the city and there are so many cafes and shops and fun things to do there.
Hope you've enjoyed your trip around Melbourne with me this week!
